Valdosta - You'll soon notice big traffic changes around Valdosta State University.

The Valdosta City Council approved a temporary traffic improvement plan around the college. Engineers will one way Oak Street from Moore to Baytree Road. They'll also add a new traffic signal and crosswalk on Patterson Street where most students cross the road to campus.

Council will review the plan after six months and decide whether the changes should be permanent. "These changes will help VSU as well as our community. We are growing, this campus is in a central location of our community and we need to make these changes now instead of when traffic really gets congested," said City Engineer Von Shipman.

The one-waying of Oak Street northbound should be finished in a few weeks.
